Loose Lattice Lace - Knitting Stitch Pattern

Here is another lace stitch pattern I like - A Loose Lattice Lace stitch pattern. The pattern is not too complicated for beginning knitters. I love it even more when I only have purl stitches on the wrong side.

Just make sure that you keep track of each row you working on. Use a row counter or a pen to mark off each row your complete to avoid mistake.

It's not easy to make a correction once you make a mistake. The best thing to do when mistake happens is to take the whole row off and start knitting from the beginning of the row again.
